UPDATE, 11/28/14: Missouri defeats Arkansas, 21-14, becoming the 2014 SEC East champion.

Thanksgiving turkey and trimmings will barely be digested before a frantic and crucial weekend of Southeastern Conference football will begin on Friday (Nov. 28, 2014).

The developments:

  • In what could be called “Red and Black Friday,” the Arkansas at Missouri game (Friday, 2:30 p.m. Eastern, CBS) will determine who wins the SEC East title and a berth in the SEC title game in Atlanta on Dec. 6. If Missouri wins, it advances. However, an Arkansas win would put Georgia (6-2 in the SEC) in the title game, as the Bulldogs own a tiebreaking win over the Tigers.
  • Aside from the much-publicized Iron Bowl and Egg Bowl games Saturday, an SEC team also will be involved in another game with College Football Playoff implications. Florida, in Coach Will Muschamp’s final regular-season game, will play at unbeaten Florida State (3:30 p.m., ESPN). The unbeaten Seminoles, an Atlantic Coast Conference member, are No. 3 in the latest playoff rankings.
  • SEC fans will have another “channel” for their passion Saturday night. Popular analyst Paul Finebaum (Twitter: @finebaum) will host a live call-in show on the SEC Network during the Iron Bowl game (Auburn-Alabama), which will be televised on sister network ESPN (7:45 p.m. Eastern)
  • Widely followed SEC Network analyst and columnist Tony Barnhart (Twitter: @mrcfb) points out that several teams beyond the top four have potential playoff scenarios.

Key SEC games/TV info for Thanksgiving weekend (all times Eastern):

  • Arkansas at Missouri, Friday, 2:30 p.m. (CBS)
  • Mississippi State at Ole Miss, Saturday, 3:30 p.m. (CBS)
  • Auburn at Alabama, Saturday, 7:45 p.m., (ESPN)
